I am currently working as a contractor for a company and my direct report is starting to mention talks around conversion.

I was brought on as a Zuora Administrator to help with the implementation for the company, so while I have administrator duties, I am also doing some consultative work to make sure this goes off with minimal issues.

One thing he asked about was salary expectations. Has anyone ever negotiated a higher salary when converting from contracted to employee?

Yes, definitely. Especially given the current rate of inflation, it's perfectly reasonable

Potentially, but you risk them negging out of the contract if the jump is too high

If the market shows you underpaid then nothing wrong in negotiating for higher salary.

Would you accept a job that offered ~50% hike over current salary? For context, I enjoy my current job and workplace - great culture, flexibility, work life balance albeit at a slower promotion path. I am very comfortable and have a good brand for myself. The new company is equally big and strong brand, but slightly less flexible (3 fixed days in office, no policy to work from outside the country for a few days etc). the role is similar function but in a different industry. Benefits are same.

Hi everyone
I’m interviewing at Slack and the recruiter is fantastic. She told me to take some time to think about my comp ask but that I should use my current salary at Meta as a guide but to go higher as staying at the same rate won’t do anything for the gender pay gap. I’m thinking of saying that I would like 15% higher but would also love to get an idea of what the salary range for a L6 or L7 marketer at Slack would be just to see if my expectations are in line.
Thanks in advance!
